Taiga.io is a lightweight, open-source agile tool that comes with a few feature gaps

Project management support, Agile team organization, multi-product management.

Pros

Taiga.io is fast and lightweight, beating out most other tools of its class. The interface is easy to use, and multiple projects are supported. Taiga also offers open-source projects a free, public, and collaboration-ready home.

Cons

While easy to use, Taiga is missing features that are core to other platforms. Many of these are being resolved with current updates, but continue to make workflows hard. Kanban and sprint views are split, feature cards cannot be carried through a Kanban view, basic operations on cards at the overview level are limited, and sprint reporting is very limited.

Pros

Taiga is easy to use for both programmers and non-technical support personnel, everyone can understand what they are doing. The main reason we chose Taiga is their pricing model. Our team began to work much faster and better with this software. For our tech department, we used it to collaborate with several different members of our team both in and out of the office. The collective feature of the board allowed us to work on projects in sprints. With Taiga, I can be sure that my project will be executed correctly. I like to use it.

Cons

I would like to create some tasks inside others, also I would like to have a better way to add comments, descriptions, and answers to questions in the program. One more thing is learning curve for less straightforward functions.

Good software to grow the team from 5-0 developers to 30. But after that, we needed something more powerful.

Pros

Easy to use, good to get started. Also I really like the fact that the software is available as open source but you can pay for a SaaS version to install it very quickly. This is what we did.

Cons

Lack of advanced features. Vision / future of this software is not good for me, developers are focusing on things I find totally unrelevant instead of focusing on adding valuable features.

Clarity, Focus and a shared view of the companies goals.

Pros

Clarity, ease of use and it's quite stylish too! We have found that with this tool information can be shared easily by our developers, marketing and product staff, giving them a unified view of the companies goals.

Cons

I would like a better bundle deal on the licences, especially as we are a small starter company. The per head charges are "OK" but it would be great if there was a lower tier that allowed a staged uplift to the full licensing model.

Pros

Taiga has a good set up and a lot of tools to work with. The program is very easy to use. I use all the functions that satisfy my work completely. For me, this is the best way to create projects. Now I have the best way to customize and make my work productive and effective. In addition, I like that there is an opportunity to contact customer support and always get a quick and correct answer. Thanks to this excellent software, our work has become much easier, and projects are more productive. Together with my team, we can create tasks, provide jobs that interest our customers. At the same time, the time is accelerating and the quality of software development is improving. This is a good tool that makes the quality of work at the highest level.

Cons

I did not find any serious problems while working with this software. There was a time when I did not like the interface of the tools, but then it was changed, and everything became good. The only thing I would like to add to the program is a mobile version.

Issue tracking, project planning, and feature planning.

Pros

User Controls. I like being able to control who can edit and create issues and stories and who can view only.

Cons

Embedding images and videos is rough. More markdown features would be nice. Ability to tighten the style Esp. on the Kanban board. I'm an advocate of specificity, so we're verbose, by default. Its tough to see anything useful in the Kanban view.

And, horizontal scrolling!?! That should never happen in a modern UI.

Simple and affordable issue and task tracking across team.

Pros

Simplicity.

Issue tracker, backlog, planning sprints with burnout chart. Team members are easy to manage. Tasks in backlog are easy to rearrange.

Cons

The biggest problem lies on user's side: to use it in full power, one has to keep using it for longer term and it may be demanding (but it brings progress into the project).

A bit strange colour scheme, a bit lost in editing issue texts. Personally I feel more in control when I edit issues in GitHub.

Integration to Bitbucket repositories, commits and issues (did not dare to try if it is present at all).

Much much easier to use than Jira.

Pros

It is really easy to use, everyone has boarded really quickly with it. We were previously using lots of different tools from Google Spreadsheet to JIRA. Taiga is much simpler to use. I don't see any other tool that would match our requirements.

Cons

User Interface feels a bit old: it might be a bit shinier. We've also tried to install the Open Source version on our server using Docker but the documentation was pretty poor at the time. Finally, we've decided to use the hosted version and we are really happy with it: it is not really expensive.

none so far. user interface prevents me from using frequently.

Pros

I like having both Kanban and Sscrum features. I like the pricing model. I like the ability to import from Trello.

Cons

User interface needs some serious work. Not good enough to use.

Get rid of the stupid Taiga logo on cards that are not assigned. Allow for different colors in backgrounds. Fix usage of white and spacing.

Helps me organize our development across our entire team.

Pros

It has a very intuitive interface and is really easy to pick up for users who are unfamiliar with Agile developments.

Cons

It can be more customizable such as being able to assign priorities to tasks. Storing screenshots requires storing them in a file first before uploading. It would be great if they can just be copy and pasted in.

Great replacement for Trello. Much easier to use than Atlassian. Useful kanban board. Can add lots of tags.

Cant estimate user stories in hours and measure progress. Also would be great to see issues on the same kanban board as user stories.

Clean layout. Clever. Easy to track stories through process. Easy to see where a story or task is in the system. Points.

Cons

Very difficult to tell what a team member, or myself is working on. Not entirely intuitive. For instance, not clear without trial and error that description is required on new project. Can't track stories' progress...only tasks.

An easy way to create and follow tasks in Kanban and Agile. A customizable product, easy to use and not expansive.

Pros

The customization because we don't follow a production pipeline that fits perfectly in one management theory. We combine different management theory to fit our needs and this is possible with Taiga. We also really like the cheap price.

Cons

We didn't had the occasion to use it deeper because we are between projects. But we think that it would be nice to track more the time users pass on some tasks and have a tool for customizable timesheets.

Pros

When JIRA didn't meet our needs, we analyzed every tool on the market and decided on Taiga due to it having the lowest number of clicks per action in our workflow. Its easy to get started with, the search features are fantastic, and it scales well from tiny projects to monsters.

Cons

We use almost exclusively the issue tracker because of it is the most flexible and has the best searching/ordering of the Taiga views. However, issues can't be owned by user stories or epics, which limits our ability to organize large projects. I wish issues could be used as children of larger scope items like epics.

We were able to organise projects for about 40 people on several teams without having to spend what something like JIRA costs.

Pros

It's very flexible and lets us adapt the Kanbans to our needs for each team. The reports generated are good.

Cons

It has connectivity issues at times. Perhaps needs an infrastructure upgrade. Cannot bulk remove or delete items from the backlog.
